Emerging Europe Live: Life in Belarus As Seen by Foreigners

Belarus is a country that an average Western European knows nothing, or very little, about. Businesses such as Viber, World of Tanks and Masquerade are only a few examples of how creative Belarusians are. Natural treasures such as Belovezhskaya Pushcha, the beautiful Braslaw lakes and finally, its great historical sights all prove that the country is definitely worth visiting.  

Emerging Europe, together with TUT.by, the largest news portal in Belarus, invited three foreigners to investigate what foreigners who live and work in Belarus say about the country: Ian Fox, Deputy Head of Mission, British Embassy, Minsk; Philipp Brunner, CEO of Stadler Belarus; Dr Klaus Baier, Team Leader, EU Most Programme, Goethe Institut and former Chairman of the German-Belarusian Economic Club.
